In Memory of Those We Lost: DJ Sammy & Yanou’s “Heaven”
When the attacks first happened, this song become one of the staples for all of those that felt any sense of loss.
I’m talking about DJ Sammy’s “Heaven.”
Originally created as a dance song, an alternate version was different with more of an emphasis on the vocals of [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Yanou[/lastfm] with a piano and a simple melody.
Ten years after we witnessed the biggest act of terrorism in our country the song has been updated to reflect a decade.
I’m going to be blunt about this song…
It created a big lump in my throat, then a felt a tear roll down my cheek, and I ended up crying.
9/11 is a day that represents our country and lifestyles being modified forever.
The little girl in this song will take your heart out and twist it in every which way, but at the end of the day it is a reality check of the time that has passed.
